Hot and fluffy pooris are a rage for breakfast in South India. Pair it with a yummy potato curry or chickpea curry, you're replenished!

Ingredients

1½ cups wheat flour/atta

½ cup maida

1½ tsp ghee

Salt, as required

Water, as required

Preparation

Mix the wheat flour, maida, salt and ghee

Add water a little at a time and make a smooth dough

Roll the dough on a smooth, clean surface to make it soft and firm

Keep it closed for 20 minutes

After 20 minutes, take the dough and flatten it out to a large form

With a cutter or steel lid, cut out small pooris

Peel off the extra dough and what remains are perfectly round pooris ready to be fried

You can flatten out the extra dough again to make more pooris

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the small pooris

Notes

Gently splash the oil on to the poori, which helps it become fluffy.
